WIMBLEDON, England -- Five-time champion Roger Federer has
advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon with a straight-set win
over Marc Gicquel of France.
After a late start following a 1-hour, 41-minute rain delay
Friday, Federer was broken in the opening game but rallied for a
6-3, 6-3, 6-1 third-round win over 53rd-ranked Gicquel on Centre
Court. His winning streak on grass improved to 62 matches.
Federer, bidding for a sixth consecutive Wimbledon title, has
dropped only two service games in eight matches since his lopsided
French Open final defeat to No. 2 Rafael Nadal.
